Come join us for our annual hike-a-thon this Sunday, June 5th, 2016 starting at the Lynn Valley Rec Centre!
This year's Gambier Grind will happen in beautiful Lynn Valley, North Vancouver.
Here's our planned schedule:
Sunday, June 5th, 2016
Meet at Sunday Service at Lynn Valley Rec Centre (optional)
Group Gathering; getting all the hikers together to prepare packed lunches and some community time and "get-to-know".
Depart at 12:30 PM
Walk/Drive to Lynn Canyon Suspension where all hikers will begin the hike together and will split into "kid-friendly" and "adult hike" groups after a while to head onto the different trail routes.
Kid-friendly Hike: Lynn Loop Trail; 5.2 km; 2 hours return trip
Adult/Challenging Hike: Lynn Peak; 8.8 km; 4 hours return trip
Also, if everyone could remember to bring their own water bottles, we need you all to stay hydrated! Remember your sun safety and slip,slop,slap! It's supposed to get up to 31 degrees on Sunday!
Lynn Valley's worship service is currently being held at the Lynn Valley Rec Centre, which is located on the corner of Mountain Hwy and Frederick Road (3590 Mt. Hwy). I have attached a map for your reference. There is a parking lot right by the Rec Centre and you should also be able to park your cars in the surrounding area of the Rec Centre.
For those of you who are using public transit, the easiest way for you to get there is to take the Seabus from Waterfront Station to Londsdale Quay. From there you can take the bus line 228 towards Lynn Valley. The bus ride takes about 20 minutes, please get off at Lynn Valley Road FS Mountain Highway. You'll then have to walk about 7 minutes up Mountain Hwy, the Rec Centre will be on the right-hand side.
Feel free to contact the organizer (Gila) on the day of the hike at 604-727-6137.
We're looking forward to seeing you all there!
